</g>
</svg>
</div>


and css

path{
fill:none;
stroke:black;
}
path:hover{
fill:red;
stroke:blue;
}


Here is the fiddle, just hover them quickly.

Answer

There's no fill so the interior does not catch mouse events by default and therefore hover doesn't react to that. Changing pointer-events to all will fix it in this case:

path{
    fill:none;
    stroke:black;
    pointer-events:all;
}
